Just Checking In and A Giveaway

Just checking in.  We're still here. 

Did you guys hear that Rob is going to get a body double?  The article I read said that he has been consistently stalked by four Japanese girls and that they are constantly "telling him they want to do ruse, saucy things to him..."  

Hmmmm?  I wonder who he'll get for his body double?  I can't imagine anybody else being THAT hott.  I'm pretty sure God only allows one Rob Pattinson at a time.

How was every one's Christmas? Hope you all had wonderful times with your family and loved ones. Ours were great! Not long enough though. Trixie and I were both wishing for more time...Christmas just went by too fast!

I did get loaded up on Twi-gear. 
My husband asked me if I am 16. 
I told him "no, 17". 
Then he asked, "how long have you been 17?" 
I said, "a while".
Gotta love a Twilight Christmas.

Kelly sent us this FAB pic. Thanks, Kelly, for always keeping us stocked with awesome Rob/IRWTSMN pics!  You rock.

How has your IRWTSMN diet going over the holidays?

I don't know about you, but I'm actually ready to get back into the swing of things.  I love the holidays.  Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  But after all of the festivities are over, it feels good to get things back to normal and get back to a routine.  I'm hoping I haven't done too much damage in the last couple of weeks, but I haven't stepped on a scale in over a month. 

I'll take the plunge next week.

I am cleaning out my Twi-closet.  So, we're going to be giving away an assortment of Twilight related goods.  I have several "extras" of things.  From time to time, I've been known to go a bit overboard while buying Twi-memorabilia.  I know.  Your shocked.

The Goods:
- a Twilight in Forks DVD
- a copy of The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner
- 2 New Moon wall hangy things.  I don't know what they're called.
- and whatever else I find to throw in.

To Enter:
- be a follower
- comment on this post
- extra entries - tweet and @ us so we'll know, post on your blog and come back and tell us about it

We'll announce the winner next Wednesday (January 5th), so you can enter up until then!

Trixie and I wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2011!

Giveaway Winner and OMG Moments

I know you're probably thinking that we forgot how to log into Blogger...or perhaps we ran away with Rob and didn't tell you guys.  Truth is that we are just SWAMPED with real life.  Anybody else?

Christmas is in full force around here, and you girls know what that means...parties, gift buying, get-togethers, meals to cook, things to bake, places to go, people to see, being driven to drinking...sadly...and when I say "sadly", I mean UBER sadness here, that means that blogging gets pushed to the back burner. 

Hopefully, everything will be back to normal in a couple of weeks.  We'll be back to blogging about Rob, having his babies, wondering what if Rob were to see us naked, and our regular Twihard agenda.

Meanwhile...

We have some blogging business to catch up on!  The winner of our YA Book Giveaway is...

*drum roll, please*

Tara from that's why her hair is so big...she's fabulous, but evil.

Congrats, Tara!  Contact us with your address and we'll hopefully have these to you buy Christmas!

OMG Moment #1 - Recently there has been a Twihard Twitter Movement.  kiTT from Tongue Twied recently started her very own revolution by getting everyone to tweet a shirtless picture of Kellan

with the hashtag #takeitoffkellan.  It was even noticed by online gossip magazine, Access Hollywood, and mentioned in this article!  How flippin' cool is that?! 

First shirtless Kellan, then world peace.
OMG Moment #2 - The trailer for Water For Elephants! 


*SWOON* I'm in love. How many more days?  *checking the sidebar*  115.  I feela WFE party coming on!

A big thanks to Robmusement for our lovely Christmas card. :)


all Christmas cards should include a Rob.

Hope you all have a wonderful week leading up to Christmas!  We'll be back later this week for another giveaway...we've gotta do something to keep you guys from leaving us.

YA Book Giveaway

I've got a serious case of the blahs today.  I've been sick all week.  It peaked yesterday with lots of disgusting symptoms that I won't discuss.  I love winter, but I hate the sickies it brings with it.

I don't really have much to say today, so I thought I would do a giveaway.

When all else fails, give some crap away, right?

We actually have some stuff to giveaway once a week from now until Christmas.  Just think of it as Trixie and Tess's way of saying MERRY CHRISTMAS.

First up, this week we're giving away a few YA books. 

Since we all love the Twilight Saga, who's to say we wouldn't love another YA book? 

The books are Evermore by Alyson Noel, 13 To Life by Shannon Delany, and Glimmerglass by Jenna Black.

I haven't actually read any of these, but I've heard good things about them.  The winner gets all three.  You must be a follower of TNT and you must comment on this post.  For extra entries, post about the giveaway on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog and come back here and let us know (or @ us on Twitter).  This giveaway is open until next Thursday at 11:59pm.  We'll have another giveaway start next Friday!

Good luck!

Happy Friday!

Are You in Love Again?

I'm sure by now you have all watched your Eclipse DVD about 20 times.  Guess what?  I haven't watched mine once.  That's right.  I've been in a Twi-Slump.  I can't seem to get excited.  What's happened to me?  This has got to be the worst kind of depression.  When you can't even get excited to see His Hotness.  What's the cure to this ailment?  Please tell me it's watching Eclipse again.


I got a call from a good friend yesterday.  She can't eat, can't sleep, has butterfiles all over again because she is totally in love with Edward.  Le sigh.  I remember those days.  Please someone help me.  Tell me how to get over this slump.

How did Eclipse affect you?  Is is the dose of Twi I need to get over this hideous disease?  Please tell me yes. 

Have you ever been in a Twi-Slump? 
 How did you cure it? 
Xoxo,

Trix

Pocket Edward Post in Pictures

These are the adventures of Pocket Edward from the Dallas Twilight Convention. Some photographs have been left out to protect the innocent...or guilty...whichever.


Edward, though he does not need food nor drink, has a great sense of smell.  He can smell a fine wine from a mile away.  He approved this glass...and many more after that.
He was often found hanging out in a pocket.  Hence the name, Pocket Edward.
Something I found out over the weekend is that Pocket Edward and Rob have a lot in common.  Such as their taste in beer.
Here he was demonstrating his mad skillz in tipping over trees.
We also took a little time out to reenact Bella's birthday, sans paper cut.
He can really cut a rug.
He met a fellow fun-size Edward.

Together they confronted the wolf in the room.
It was a fun time had by all.

He gave a little 'tude when I said it was time to go.
I had to pull him off the walls...

We spent the rest of the evening lying in the meadow...er...the lobby. 
I'm surprised hotel security wasn't called. 

I think they're a little lax when the Twihards are in town.

Dear Rob

Dearest Rob,

*Please cue music, then scroll*











We know you're going to be extra busy this year what with filming Breaking Dawn and having beach sex with KStew, so we wanted to get our wish list in early...

All we want for Christmas is you.  Just so you know...in advance.  So, we'll be expecting you standing on our front porch wrapped up nicely in a big red bow (red is our favorite color).

Besides Rob and world peace, what are you wanting for Christmas this year?

#SUMMITFAIL - Eclipse DVD Release

Today on Twitter, we've been discussing the HUGE fail that is Summit.  Where is all of the Eclipse DVD hype?!  WTH, Summit? 

For the past two years, I have attended at least one DVD release party...sometimes TWO.  Usually, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Hot Topic, Wal-Mart, and Hastings always have a DVD release party for the newest Twilight movie.  This year, the only DVD release parties I can find are at Wal-Mart and a few at Hastings.  I normally despise Wal-Mart, but I'm totally loving them right now, because if it weren't for them there would be no where to go get an Eclipse DVD at midnight.  If you're looking for a DVD release party, you can go to http://www.eclipsethemovie.com/ and they have a place where you can plug in your zip code and they'll show you all the local stores that are hosting them. 

I think we have to blame Summit for this.  They should be doing better marketing for the movie.  I realize they're all busy with the filming of Breaking Dawn, but what about us?  What about the fans that keep this franchise going?  We want a little excitement for the freaking Eclipse DVD release!  I was hoping for some star appearances like they did last year for New Moon.  I mean surely EVERYONE isn't busy.  I guess they've just spoiled us with all the hoopla in the past.

Here are my plans...go to Wal-Mart and get my copy at 12:01 and enjoy a little festivities, because it just wouldn't seem right without it, and then buy the Deluxe Edition at Target the next day. 


I've been buying the Borders Deluxe Edition and I've read that Target is now carrying that particular version.

So, where are you buying your Eclipse DVD? What version are you buying?

I know some of you are having DVD parties...I want to hear all about it!  I need to live vicariously through you.  I think I'll just have my own little party by myself.  I have a whole box of stuff left over from the premiere party...it's an Eclipse party just waiting to happen!

Happy Thanksgiving

Trixie and I just wanted to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you all have a great day with family and friends!!

IRWTSMN - Check Up

Hello, Lovelies!

How was your weekend?  Ours were busy, as usual.  The next week or so will probably be hit-or-miss for us.  With the holidays coming around, our blogging will be sporadic, but we will try to check in and post as often as we can.  For those of you who won a giveaway in the past few weeks, your goods should be delivered (except for rpfangirl - going in the mail today!).  Please let us know that you got your stuff.  I sent everything via Fed-Ex, so I can track any shipment.

How is everybody doing with the IRWTSMN diet?  I know holidays are the hardest.  For me, the downward spiral starts about Halloween and it finally ends around New Year's night.  That's when I make my NEW resolution that I "won't be this fat this time next year...blah, blah, blah."  Well, I'm going to try to not do too much damage this year.  It's just that much more that I'll have to take off and this is too much work to add any unwanted pounds.

Here's are my tips for the holidays:
  1. *Fill your plate with healthy options and just take a small portion of the more fattening dishes.
  2. *Wear tighter fitting clothes, so that you won't feel like you can stuff yourself...leave that for the turkey.
  3. *Spend more time visiting with family than eating food.
  4. *And always, always remember...what IF ROB WERE TO SEE ME NAKED??
  5. *AND NEVER leave home without these..

Now how is that for some motivation to get your through the holidays?!

A HUGE thanks to Kelly from My discomROBulation.  Thank you so much, Kelly!

How are you holding up through the holidays?

Twilight Convention In Pictures

Hello, Lovelies.  Sorry we've been MIA this week.  
Real life is such crazy sometimes.  
Trixie is have THE.WORST.TIME.EVER with her Internet connection, making it nearly impossible for her to post on the blog or comment on blogs...basically anything to do with the Internet.  So, say a small prayer for Trix and her Internet.  I have been trying to recuperate from the Twilight Convention.  I think I got a total of 6 hours of sleep the whole time I was gone.  Plus, I had to drive 5 hours home...alone.  It was exhausting, but oh-so-worth it!  This week I started righting on another blog.  So, now I have TNT, my personal blog, and a once-a-week post on a group blog.  What have I gotten myself into?!

I'm going to try to get caught up over here by showing you all the pictures from the Twilight Convention.

Beware of photo overload.

The convention started on Saturday morning.  
Can I just say that partying at Pete's until 3 am is not the best way to start off an all day convention, but thanks to large amounts of Starbucks I made it until 3 am the following morning!  Thank you, Starbucks!

First up was the wonderful and funny Christopher Heyerdahl.  He plays Marcus in New Moon and Breaking Dawn.  
He is also well known for other roles in movies and television series, like Supernatural.  
His bald head is due to a role he is playing right now.  He is just one of the nicest guys you will EVER meet!  After seeing him twice now, I'm a huge fan.

For each star, they hold about a 40 minute question and answer session.  You are allowed to submit as many questions as you would like.  Sometimes they are able to ask them all of the submitted questions and then the stars will mingle through the audience and allow people to ask questions from the floor.

Hillywood facilitates the Q&A session.  They're awesome!
Above is a pic of Hillywood's Edward and Bella, Jacob Jost and Hilly Hindi.  
Below is a pic of Hillywood's Jasper, Drew Lorentz.  He's fantastic.
I really loved this shot that I got of Jacob "Edward" and Hilly "Bella".

After Christopher, 
we got to see Bronson Pelletier and Kiowa Gordon.  
They are so much fun.  Bronson is full of energy.  
He is a Canadian and I love to hear him talk.  Different accents and dialects amuse me.


He is such a cutie and he said during the Q&A that when someone asks him what his favorite animal is, he answers "cougar"...and sometimes "pumas".  LOL.  LOVE HIM!  He's 23, so he's totally legal. 

Kiowa is more reserved and quiet, 
but still just as funny and cracks these "undercover" jokes...
like you have to really be paying attention to get it, but he's funny. 

FINALLY, it was time for PeterfreakinFacinelli!!

They were actually doing one of their auctions, where they auction off things from the convention...banners, pictures, other autographed pictures from previous conventions, etc.

Peter stuck his head in the door and yelled out "I bid $500" and the guy auctioning off the stuff yelled out "we just added a date with Peter Facinelli!" LOL.  The whole audience erupted in hoots and hollars.  It was great.

Here's a few of my favorite Peter pics from the weekend.





Most of the good pictures I got of Peter were from the dinner that night.
We had an Asian dinner buffet and Peter was the guest of honor.  He spent about 5-10 minutes at each table just chit chatting.  It was really nice to just have normal conversation with him.  I asked him about his schedule and when he'll be in Baton Rouge (w/ the Precious)...around December 4th in case you're wondering.  He said that they are filming a lot of the indoor shots from the Cullen house there.

Jennie and the kids are doing great.  I asked. 

Later that night, we had the Volturi Ball.  
Kiowa, Bronson, and Christopher came to mingle.  
It was a lot of fun seeing them out and about.  
They were having drinks and enjoying themselves.  
We tried not to go all fangirl on them, 
but I did snap this pic when Kiowa was looking at me.


We shut that party down.  

I think my cousin and I were two of the last to leave. 

It was fun!  Pocket Edward had a great time too.

He gave a little attitude when it was time to go.
I took him to the meadow...er...the lobby so he could collect his thoughts and cool down a bit.

Tons more PE pics where those came from!  I'll share soon!

Jodelle was our last star of the conference.  
She was so sweet and at times she was SO 16!  I just love her.  
I think it would be great if the Short Life of Bree Tanner was turned into it's own movie!

During the conference we also had autograph signings and photo ops, 
but we weren't allowed to have our cameras or phones in line.

I have so many pictures that I'm still shuffling through.  
So, I may post some more soon.  
I'll definitely put more of Pocket Edward's adventures up.  

Hope you girls are having a great week!♥
